yfrog

ImageShack launched Yfrog.com in February of 2009 to offer easy image and video sharing to Twitter on top of the same infrastructure that supports its hosting service. It allows users to not only share photos and videos on Twitter but also broadcast their lives as it happens.

For Twitter users, yfrog is free with no registration required and sharing pictures or videos is as simple as just two clicks. It is designed for real-time, rapid uploads and sharing and provides secure login via Twitter’s credential service. Users can upload media to yfrog from a file on a computer, URL by using yfrog’s webcam feature to capture a photo or video, sending an email containing a file as an attachment, or using one of the hundreds of tools and applications that support yfrog. I.E: Twitter for iPhone, Tweetdeck, and Twitterrific Developers who can use yfrog’s APIs to upload media.

Yfrog enables photos and videos to be shared via email, via links and embedded codes, and on social sites including Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Digg, and more. With up to 5MB of high-resolution photos and 20 minute long videos, users are able to post bigger photos and much longer videos.
